I worked at Apple full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great place to work! Very good work ethics. Things move too fast to waste time with drama or people who don't contribute… they get fired fast.
From an IT standpoint, you get 100% control of your own system(s)!

Cons

Poor work/life balance. Employee discounts are less than desirable. Because working for Apple is considered "it's own reward" there is a tendency to pay on the lower side of the spectrum. Unfortunately applicants will take the below industry rates just to be at apple.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Never be afraid to say "no".

    I worked at Apple full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Basically was life training; the varied interactions (and customers) teach you how to approach lots of different situations. You might become more outgoing as a result of working there. You also get the opportunity to learn a ton about technology. Worth it if you are willing to put the time in.

    Cons

    Lots of rules, some of which can be broken, but unclear which. There is a bit of a glass ceiling - it can be hard to move up. And there is a lot of ambiguity; sometimes it's not entirely clear what is actually expected of your performance vis a vis with what management is saying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be consistent in what you are communicating to staff.

    I have been working at Apple part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I really enjoy my co-workers in Apple Retail. My position is a Technician, perhaps better known as "Genius." The products and services are well aligned to customer needs, and there is no pressure to be "salesy"... we're simply there to help people out with their Apple products.

    Cons

    Our store was very small and outdated for the demand we face. The managers sometimes forget that our job is customers AND repairs, and lately our scheduling has been abysmal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Proper scheduling makes this job really fun and engaging, or completely awful. Being able to meet demand and fix customer's issues is where our heart is, and when too many customers flood the store, it makes the experience horrible on both ends.
